Report 19/9/17

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Sep 22, 2017 10:36 am

Very few venturing offshore this week with a seemingly endless wind swell. Anglers that did head out caught a few flathead behind Gabo Island and Talaberga. The best method was dropping pilchard or squid on double paternoster rigs in 40-50m of water.

The odd gummy shark being taken off Secret Beach. Fresh fish fillets fished behind the gutters during the night being the best method.
Salmon present in most of the gutters along the beaches. Spinning metal lures always a safe option to try when trying to locate schools of fish. Larger surface lures also a good choice for lure anglers. Whole pilchards rigged on ganged hooks taking a few fish also.
The breakwall has been a good sheltered spot to try for a number of species. The usual species including drummer, bream and trevally can all be taken while fishing peeled prawns around the kelp and rocks adjacent to the wall.
Spinning metal lures off the wall has been a good way to target schools of tailor and salmon moving past the front of the wall. Try the first hour after the change of the tide for best results.

Coul’s Inlet producing a few bream and flathead. Fresh prawns working best for these fish. Try fishing in the evening for the better fish.
Fishing platforms along the boardwalk producing sizeable trevally. Small prawn style soft plastics or weightless blue bait fillets taking the fish.
Bottom lake has been a little slow on the bream front. Fish can still be found at Marshmeed and Fair Haven. Slowly worked soft plastics or vibes taking these fish.
Double Creek edges producing a few bream for anglers fishing hard bodied lures or prawns. Try fishing when there is a bit of wind to stir the water up for the best fishing.
The majority of action for this week has been upwards of Cape Horn. Bream and flathead congregating in the 2-3m depth and taking soft plastics and hardbodies.

A few bream also to be found in the snags upwards of Gypsy Point. Hard bodied lures working best here.
